How to eliminate your accent and some imitations-thinking without transcription #19-Italian Podcast


“Uègiargiana, your Milanese accent is good!” I apologize for this attempt to imitate the way Milanese speak, but I just discovered a very interesting YouTube channel: “Il Milanese imbruttito”. I can understand the dialogue with the dictionary and pause. I like this episode, “The Ugly Pope”, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omsyX1ZCam0 … The protagonist has a great accent when he says “top”.

Your last episode is very interesting! I am not a linguist, but, in my opinion, your English pronunciation is very good, especially because you use the correct phonemes, even if it seems to me that you have a slight Italian/Turin accent (?). I also like to imitate various French accents, and I agree with you: this is a question of talent. But completely imitating the accent without using the correct phoneme seems absurd to me, just like the French pronounced “orange” / o’rei ndʒ / instead of / ˈɔrɪndʒ /. It is better to use the correct pronunciation with a strong French accent than to fake it with an accent similar to that of a BBC host. When you read the English text again, your Italian accent is heavier, but when you use the correct phonemes, your pronunciation is correct. Do you agree or disagree?

In my opinion, the “multilingual” with the best French accent is Luca Lampariello. He makes mistakes, but it sounds(?) like a Frenchman… which is weird.

May I ask you one more question? When should/may be called “you” to another person or other people? I have read various explanations, but I want to know what you think.
